Restitution Paid In Mercer County Booster Club Theft Case

All $50,000 in restitution has been paid in a Mercer County Athletic Booster Club theft case. 44 year old Angie Dellitt was formally sentenced today in Mercer County Circuit Court. Per terms of the agreement announced in late December, the Aledo woman will be placed on 30-months’ probation and serve 20 days in the Mercer County Jail with the balance of a 120-day jail term stayed as long as she complies with terms of the sentencing, which includes a mental health evaluation. She is scheduled to report to jail on March 1. Dellitt pleaded guilty to a Class 2 felony of theft—alleging unauthorized control of between $10,000 and $100,000 and using the said funds for hotel rooms, restaurants, meals and other personal items.  A similar Class 2 felony theft charge involving the Mercer County School District was dismissed as part of the agreement. Dellitt was arrested last August and has been free on $30,000 bond. She formerly served as both the booster club’s treasurer and the school district’s bookkeeper. A total of 11 victim impact statements were submitted for the court to consider prior to formal sentencing.
